MetadataShow full item record
A new protocol for scheduling TDMA transmission in a mobile ad hoc network isdeveloped. With this protocol, nodes reserve time slots for unicast, multicastor broadcast transmission. The protocol uses contention for nodes to reservetransmission time slots, its operation is distributed and concurrent; thereforeit is independent of the network size and can be used in large or dynamicnetworks. Its performance is studied with simulation and compared with IEEE 802.11 protocol.
